Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Arccotangent function

    See Inverse cotangent function.

  • Binomial theorem

    A theorem that gives an expansion formula for (a + b)n

  • Coefficient of determination

    The number r2 or R2 that measures how well a regression curve fits the data

  • Coordinate(s) of a point

    The number associated with a point on a number line, or the ordered pair associated with a point in the Cartesian coordinate plane, or the ordered triple associated with a point in the Cartesian three-dimensional space

  • Data

    Facts collected for statistical purposes (singular form is datum)

  • Direction vector for a line

    A vector in the direction of a line in three-dimensional space

  • Geometric sequence

    A sequence {an}in which an = an-1.r for every positive integer n ? 2. The nonzero number r is called the common ratio.

  • Imaginary part of a complex number

    See Complex number.

  • Independent variable

    Variable representing the domain value of a function (usually x).

  • Limit

    limx:aƒ1x2 = L means that ƒ(x) gets arbitrarily close to L as x gets arbitrarily close (but not equal) to a

  • Linear equation in x

    An equation that can be written in the form ax + b = 0, where a and b are real numbers and a Z 0

  • Linear function

    A function that can be written in the form ƒ(x) = mx + b, where and b are real numbers

  • Magnitude of a vector

    The magnitude of <a, b> is 2a2 + b2. The magnitude of <a, b, c> is 2a2 + b2 + c2

  • Mathematical induction

    A process for proving that a statement is true for all natural numbers n by showing that it is true for n = 1 (the anchor) and that, if it is true for n = k, then it must be true for n = k + 1 (the inductive step)

  • Quartic function

    A degree 4 polynomial function.

  • Sinusoidal regression

    A procedure for fitting a curve y = a sin (bx + c) + d to a set of data

  • Speed

    The magnitude of the velocity vector, given by distance/time.

  • Statistic

    A number that measures a quantitative variable for a sample from a population.

  • Tangent line of ƒ at x = a

    The line through (a, ƒ(a)) with slope ƒ'(a) provided ƒ'(a) exists.

  • Upper bound for real zeros

    A number d is an upper bound for the set of real zeros of ƒ if ƒ(x) ? 0 whenever x > d.
